great havoc amongst the houses, scarce one that does not show
some bullet hole or other damage, some parts of the city can never
bc built up again, & fortunately it is in rather an inferior part of
the town, principally in and about the fortifycations, which de-
served most to suffer.
I have been twice to the castle & been each time much pleased,
I saw Quebec once, & tho of a very different character from this
fortifycation, it cannot compare in immenseness with this place,
it is so intricate & so large that altho I have twice been there &
observed it narrowly with a view of putting it down on paper, I
found it impossible to do so & could not retain it with any degree
of correctness in my mind, when next I go there I will carry a
pencil and paper in my pocket.
We are now leading a very lazy life & our time is at our own
disposal to which you are indebted for this long letter, which you
will no doubt be tired of reading before arriving at the end, I
wrote Mama a long letter some days ago, informing her that I
was safe, as she must have been uneasy about me, I am much
obliged to you for wishing me all honour & glory but as for the
flesh wounds in the legs I would much rather be without them,
whatever the consequences may be, I hope you will answer this &
let me know what is going on. Give my love to Mama, to Sister
Susan, Brother [Pe]ter & the whole family.
Your afft Brother,
A. M. MA IGATLT.
